My Community

Overview

During this lesson pupils consider what we mean by the word community and are challenged to think about all the different community groups they belong to and how it feels to belong to a community.

Pupils go on to explore a variety of different key roles within the community and the support they provide. The lesson concludes with pupils taking part in a scavenger hunt (either physical or virtual) where they discover the range of spaces and facilities available within their local community.
